Candidate Forums: March 21 and 22, 2023 (Tentative)
Next month we will be collaborating with Milford TV to host our Tenth Annual Candidate Forum series featuring the candidates in contested races in Milford’s upcoming town election. At this time, we plan to host two forums: one on the evening of Tuesday, March 21 and the second on the evening of Wednesday, March 22. Both will be held in Upper Town Hall and broadcast live on Milford TV. We may change this plan depending upon how many candidates pull and return papers by the deadline of February 14. The candidates will be invited to meet voters at 6:30 p.m. before each forum begins at 7:00 p.m.

Milford Beautification Day will be held Saturday, April 22 (rain or shine) from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
